Our new kitchen chest, made by Einar

Einar was not completely happy with our old "kitchen chest". First of all, it was not authentic at all... although it had an authentic look, and second it was just too heavy even when empty!

He decided to make a new chest over the weekend and here's the result. You will notice that the lid was inspired by the Mastermyr chest and the bottom was inspired by the Oseberg chest.

The iron hinges were bought from our Danish Viking friend Sören Nordekjaerd.

Here's a nice photo of the Oseberg chest. The original you see hereunder is on display in the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo, Norway.
